Your philanthropic investment in CPMC’s Program in Medicine and Human Values (PMHV) will help provide clinical ethics consultations for patients, their families and caregivers while they deal with difficult decisions. The conversation is brought directly to the bedside whenever possible and when patients are unable to speak for themselves, PMHV ethics consultants help guide loved ones toward a decision they believe the patient would make themselves if they could.
PMHV patient consultations are not reimbursed by insurance. Philanthropic partners have sustained the program since its inception. Generous gifts from grateful patients and partners like you have rapidly expanded our services and academic presence.
It’s a very profound job they have of lovingly guiding people towards dying well. Because of them, my husband died a death of great dignity, in my arms, just as he wished.
